Banco Central de Cuba – Tipo de Cambio

I am starting a new topic in the expectation that a previous one will drift into the background. On March 17 this year, I thought it would be helpful to post the exchange rates for the Convertible Peso at this topic:

tripadvisor.ca/ShowTopic-g147270-i91-k432757…

Unfortunately, I am sometimes ham-handed when I type, and I typed Tipio de Cambio, rather than Tipo de Cambio. I am always embarrassed when I make a silly mistake, so I have often cringed when I see the title of the topic, and have been thinking of starting a new one with a corrected title. So here it is.

If anyone wants to see the historical rates over the past seven months, please look at the link above. From now on, future updates will be posted on this current topic.

Bellagio has posted (on that previous topic) tomorrow’s rates that were just recently updated on the Banco Central website.

Based on the rates from Bellagio’s post (#215 on the above topic), here is the best rate you will get for 100 units of each of the following currencies:

$100 (CDN) ---> 94.67 CUC

£100 ------------> 151.64 CUC

€100 ------------> 132.22 CUC

And for my typing errors (past, present and future), mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.

Regards,

Jack

The actual banks will be closed in Cuba tomorrow for May Day so those rates in CubaJack's post above will be operative on May 2nd.

That's a good point. I didn't pick up on that when I was wondering what they meant by showing the date as "1y2/5/13". (1 and 2?)

Yes that's correct. I only released it because my friend went to the bank today and said it was closed tomorrow. I would guess that Cadecas in the towns will also be closed, but Cadecas at the resorts will be open as normal and will presumably offer the rates you posted.
